To get the larger photos, I left clicked on the pic to bring it up larger, then click the copy image.
I don't use Picasa for my photos, but when I posted your photo I followed your link to the album, then clicked on the photo to enlarge. Then I captured the image location. As you see from your post with the larger pics, the iRV2 forum software automatically resizes them to fit in the post, adding the "click to enlarge" bar along the top.

Smart Tile Project Completed

This sure is a simple way to tile. The most effort is the prep work, installing the "tiles" was simple. The oak trim was also more work than the tiling but it finishes off the edges nicely. Here is the "Before" 1980's mirror look, the "Prep" with everything cleaned and ready to install and the "After" with a much more updated appearance.







For those of you wanting to tackle this job... if you have a mirror backsplash I just used a putty knife and worked it to break the seal on the double sided tape. Then I used the end of the putty knife like a knife to slice off the tape and silicone. I removed the 1/4 round at the top of the wall too. Work from the corner out and just cut the last pieces where you want to stop. I cut the wall paper about 1/4" short so the tile overlapped. For those with woodworking tools I fabricated a small profile molding and used the nail gun to attach the molding and 1/4 round. I'm not sure of the total time since I worked a little here and there but I don't think it was much more than 4-5 hours total for everything.

I like it.
We've been trying to decide which tile to use,so many options.
Ours currently is wallpapered, Would you take it off or put the tiles over the wallpaper? I was going to paint over the wallpaper but decided after seeing all these that have done the tiles we decided to go that route.
Thanks, Tim

Tim, My opinions only... two things I would consider as far as installing over wallpaper.
1) Is the wallpaper a smooth surface or not (mine is a textured surface)? If textured I would not install on it as the adhesive on the tile has reduced surface to stick to.
2) Are there any areas where your wallpaper is not firmly secured to the wall surface behind it and how easy is it to peal off? If you have any doubt that your wallpaper is well secured to the wall I would not risk applying to the wallpaper and having it peal off. Conversely, if your wallpaper is smooth and it will be a pain to remove just install right over the paper.

Good luck with the project.

For those who've had these installed at least a year, how are they holding up? I know you can remove them by softening the adhesive with a hairdryer. Wondering if heat buildup inside the coach (when it's just sitting between trips, not being used) could cause the adhesive to fail. Hoping you folks in TX & other southern states that've done this could give some input.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Whoaaaaa...!!

I'm reading Kevin's pictures in his post as what can happen to this material when subjected to high ambient temperatures. I'd call that a complete failure! That sure doesn't look like anything I would want to invest in, since I live in even hotter country than Kevin does!

Also, realizing I'm not too quick on the uptake at times, Lincolnboy (I think it was) was talking about ruining saw blades designed for ceramic when cutting this material, then folks are talking about cutting it with exacto knives or scissors...?? What the heck...??? I guess I would have to inspect this product up close and personal to figure out where I've gone wrong.
